Motorola's European handset chief Vik Patel has become the latest in a string of executives to leave the troubled vendor, according to a report by Marketing Week.
His departure could be a setback for Sanjay Jha, the newly-appointed CEO of the struggling devices division, who was recruited from chipmaker Qualcomm earlier in August.
In an unusual move, Jha was also appointed to co-CEO of the whole company, alongside Greg Brown, who has led Motorola since last November.
Unfortunately the report doesn't cite any sources, and a call to Motorola seeking confirmation was not immediately returned.
If indeed Patel has left, he'll be just one of a whole host of Moto execs to leave the company in 2008.
So far this year the vendor's finance chief Tom Meredith, marketing chief Kenneth 'Casey' Keller, and one-time handset CEO Stu Reed have all left the company.
